Susan notes: Thanks to TED for making TED Talks downloadable and embeddable, and for providing the biographical information that goes along with them.
In a brilliantly tongue-in-cheek analysis, Sebastian Wernicke turns the tools of statistical analysis on TEDTalks, to come up with a metric for creating "the optimum TEDTalk" based on user ratings. How do you rate it? "Jaw-dropping"? "Unconvincing"? Or just plain "Funny"?
After making a splash in the field of bioinformatics, Sebastian Wernicke moved on to the corporate sphere where he motivates and manages multidimensional projects.
Currently an Engagement Manager at Oliver Wyman, Sebastian Wernicke originally studied bioinformatics at Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena. During his time in academia, he devised an algorithm for analyzing biological networks that now aids researchers in dealing with their innate complexity.

Susan notes: you wouldn't do it to them, so please, don't do it to me - or to other small business owners and entrepreneurs :)
The entrepreneurial path is not always easy for newcomers. Often, it’s the first time you’re actually representing yourself – and that’s a whole different ball game than having the political clout of a major corporation behind you.
It can be lonely out there, especially for those of us who are a bit shyer than we’d like to admit. Not all women entrepreneurs are naturally outgoing and aggressive.
Whatever you do - sports, business, volunteering - perhaps the only thing harder than winning is… winning again!
Getting that next writing assignment, winning new clients, starting a new book or article or dealing effectively with a challenging situation can be as difficult, perhaps even MORE difficult, the second time around as it was the first.
